Christmas Decorations

 

Christmas 2020 is approaching. Many of us have a Christmas tree (or buy it) and love to decorate it. I have an artificial tree and old ornaments - from my childhood - and some new ones. These are globs, figurines of animals and children and, of course, figurines of Father Frost (Santa Claus), Snow Girl and Snowman.
Here are New Year decorations with a new design. I think there is always something old about any new design. Houses, snow-covered Christmas trees, Santa Claus, birches, balalaika, children ... 




 

Perhaps 100 years ago, no one could have imagined a figurine of a cow (or calf ?) or something remotely resembling a Christmas tree with lights as ornament :-) Maybe you have new ornaments like these dancers,  mittens, nutcracker, hare made of wool, glass, wood, multi-colored fabric.

 


 

 

 

The last ornament is a sad Santa Claus in a mask, only his sad eyes and raised in surprise eyebrows are visible.

He seems to say: 

I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year without "corona", but take care of yourself and your beloved ones.

    1. I agree, this Christmas is different, Marijke. Some people will be unable to hug their relatives and friends due to lockdown. My desire is the same as yours for our life to return to its former life.

  8. My dear!
    For me, the old, worn glass baubles from my childhood are the most valuable. I decorate one Christmas tree with them. The second, large and artificial, I decorate with modern baubles, but bought in a family factory, where they are hand-made in various shapes. Just like the beautiful ones you presented to us.
    I wish you much health and peaceful holidays among your loved ones.
    Hugs! Anita

    1. Я думаю, что такие ёлочные игрушки как этот Дед мороз не будут больше висеть на наших елках, Надежда.
      Берегите себя!

  10. здравствуйте, Надежда! Да уж, Дед Мороз в маске в качестве ёлочной игрушки!!! Это скорее грустно, чем весело! Честно говоря, я бы такую на свою ёлку не повесила бы! Желать не заболеть "короной" -ещё одна печальная реалия нынешних времён! Хочется, чтобы всё это уже осталось позади! И Дед Мороз в маске стал бы игрушкой-раритетом и предметом коллекционирования или лежал бы где-нибудь высоко и далеко на антресолях! С наступающим Вас, Надежда, безкоронным Новым Годом! Пусть корона будет только на голове!

    1. Полностью с вами согласна, Елена. Пусть Дед мороз в маске останется в истории и на дальней полке. Я на мою елку повесила игрушки моего детства, а им уже много десятков лет...
      Надеюсь, наступающий год будет добрее к нам, людям.

  13. Hi Nadezda,
    Beautiful Christmas ornaments.
    The last ornament of Santa Claus is really appropriate.
    Bearing in mind the situation that we all go through because of the virus, I wish to you and to your family, as much as possible, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, full of health, joy and love.
    A big hug

  19. Lovely ornaments! Many of those are designs I have never seen, and yet they are so very recognisable as Christmas. The final one of santa in a mask is unmistakably 2020. Have you added this to your collection? Have a lovely Christmas!

    1. I think, Jenny, Santa in a mask is a souvenir of this year but I wouldn't buy it as a new ornament.It's a sad one. Happy Christmas days.
